4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had on tap at Deep Ellum in Boston. Dark amber in color with a nice fluffy white head. Nice aroma of dark fruits, bread, candy, banana and carmel. Taste is of raisons, plums, roasted malts, carmel and toffee. Creamy mouthful, no detection of alcohol, easy to drink. Very enjoyable and would recommend to others.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear dark chestnut with a sticky beige head. Nose is predominately biscuit and toffee. A big malt driven beer. Taste shows more class with toffee biscuit, some citric tang, honey and Belgian focus. Balanced well and very creamy. Solid as drop but lacks the depth of a true Quad

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a St. Bernardus gobelet. It is a dark brown with a small but persistent creamy white head that leaves great lacing. Nose is of bananas, buttered toasts and caramel. Some raisins. Alcohol is only lightly felt through the nose. Taste is sweet and fruity, following along the same lines. The flavors and sugar cross into the barleywine category at times, Mouthfeel is downright syrupy, sticky sweet. Carbonation is low, body full as it gets. A really nice one! Not quite the archetypical ABT but still really, really good!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 13C. Dark brown with a fat coat of off-white head that fades after a time but never quite disappears. Aroma of stewed and dried fruit - prunes, raisins, dried banana - dough, cloves. Full, somewhat syrupy texture, lowish carbonation. No real chocolate notes. Bass register fruitiness that’s lightened by a dry, spicy and discreetly bitter finish. Slightly disjointed like a low res picture - maybe would come together more in another few months. But pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark ruby with a bit of brown, with a fine off white head.
Nose is plum, prune, honey sweetness, clove, banana, slightly tart and funky. Interesting and enticing nose.
Flavour is sweet and malty on the attack, with clove, banana, more dark dried fruits, a hint of vegemite, slightly roasty on the finish with a good dose of sweetness.
Very smooth, fairly heavy body.
Really excellent beer, lots of lovely dark flavours and wonderfl to drink.
